Series 1 80 inch bulkheads 1948 to 1953

Technical Specifications

Production Dates
1948 to 1953 - 80" Series 1 Bulkhead

Over the course of production, The Rover Co. engineers made multiple incremental improvements to their bulkheads, but only ever used two Part Numbers, so Pegasus has introduced ‘Type’ numbers designed to easily identify which bulkhead you require, based on the month and year of when your Land-Rover went into production.

The following dates (listed below) are provisional and are based on actual production dates. The Vehicle Registration date is no guide to the Build Date.

When ordering an 80” bulkhead, please specify if your Land-Rover is LHD or RHD. As standard we fit the Steering Box Strengthening Plate, Part No. 302536 to the relevant footwell.

Jig Aligned

Assembled on several major assembly jigs, which locate key mounting points throughout the build process.

Universal Fitment

Built to 'universal' RHD or LHD specification.

Durable Coating

Surface finished in an e-coating as standard, ready for painting.

Ready to Fit

Made to fit exactly like the original manufacturers specification; endorsed by classic car insurers.

Handmade In The UK

Our Process

“We would like to think, that if one of the original assembly workers at the Rover factory in Solihull, viewed our bulkheads today, he would find it very difficult to detect any differences to the original”.

Individual Components

We utilize our own designs and patterns to cut and shape the final parts. We have invested in advanced tooling to create a bulkhead that is comparable to Rover's original engineering. Pegasus have extensive experience in sheet metal work and are able to replicate all original pressing details, holes, spire nut locations, and footwell ribs.

Made Stiffer, Stronger and Corrosion-free

Our parts are fabricated with minimal pressing, preserving metal thickness. Using modern design and materials, we have improved performance by strengthening and stiffening weak points by 50% compared to the original bulkhead. This means that not only does the bulkhead maintain its original appearance, but it is also more durable and long-lasting.

Spot Welded Like The Originals

Pegasus bulkheads are constructed using the same spot welding method as the original bulkheads. The majority of the parts are joined together using spot or TIG welding to create sub-assemblies, which are then assembled into the final assembly. To ensure precise bulkhead geometry, the assembly is constructed on a 36 reference point jigs.

Final Stage Welded

Pegasus utilize TIG welding on the final assembly for heavy-duty brackets, lap joints, and butt joints. The heavy-duty brackets such as the bonnet hinges, tie rod brackets, and bottom feet are also welded into place using TIG welding to replicate the original oxy-acetylene welding method. We maintain the highest standards in our manufacturing process and have complete control over the quality of each finished bulkhead.
